TRP’s latest addition to its cyclocross brakes are the CX9. It is a mini V-brake which boasts of superior stopping power.

The TRP CX9 is the latest high end mini V-brakes that has caught the fancy of cyclocross riders and fans as well. It is designed to operate the 90mm machined aluminum arms, titanium hardware road pad brake to easily adapt the spring tensions and screw on each arms.

The CX9 is able to minimize fork shudder and less operational road leverage on any type of terrain. It does not require a longer arm V-brake to create that good bite stoppage with less lever stroke.

Cotic now has a new cyclocross offer for 2011 called the ‘X’. The ‘cross bike was initially requested for cyclocross athlete Kate Potter. The first ‘X’ was a Reynolds 853 frame.

The production of the X involved a custom butted heat treated cromoly tubeset but still follows the geometry of the 853 frame. It has a oval top tube, which helps for shouldering, and there are no cable stops. It also features the Cotic wishbone design at the rear with bridgeless chainstays and gussets under the downtube.

The Cotic X has massive tire clearance and CNC machined dropouts. Twin bottle mounts are also a luxury on the bike. The mounts are placed strategically next to the headtube and behind it so you can still…
